"Pinky Irene"

Had to share! I had an order for a thread catcher from one of my wonderful repeat buyers, Cindy P. who lives in Missouri. She messaged me a photo of her super sweet pink Singer Featherweight along with her new matching thread catcher. I'm in LOVE! Cindy named her Featherweight, "Pinky Irene". The Pinky part is self explanatory... but she chose "Irene" after her grandmother. She wrote, "Pinky Irene" is her name! Irene after my grandma, who sewed for me all my life, taught me how to sew and how to quilt." Doesn't that just warm your heart? And her photo raised the question. Do I maybe need a pink Featherweight? I just might... and a pink iron, too!  Thanks, Cindy for brightening our day.

Proud Mother !

It's Super Bowl Sunday! Can you guess what I'm doing today? Not what you think, I bet. I'm SEWING! And because I just can't leave anything alone..., I've made a pincushion with a tiny framed 3 inch patchwork block. I've made the pincushion previously but always thought that it needed just a little something more. So I added little "flanges" as framing and love the way that it turned out. Check out that TEENY TINY vintage hexagon twinkle button! I didn't want the pincushion to feel like the Lone Ranger, so I made the matching Thread Catcher, too. Sometimes I feel like a proud mother, birthing these things one after the other. Just now listed in my Etsy shop, Curry Bungalow
